Somatic Movement - theory, practice, recognising and releasing neuromuscular tension from the muscles in the stomach and back and waist. Focused Breathing. Self Sensing.
Learn to use the greatest most complex technology available - Your Brain. Train your brain to change your body - Move less, experience more with a simple somatic education mind /body programme.
This is a series of movements which will systematically help release physical and emotional trauma from the body, creating new body awareness that improves your breathing and walking, offering relief from chronic muscle tension or pain, reduce work-related physical stress, eliminate pain or other dysfunction resulting from trauma, injury or an accident and avoid or reverse stiffness, pain and many other problems associated with aging.
“Somatics” is the Greek word for the living body. Our sensory-motor systems continually respond to daily stresses and traumas with specific muscular reflexes – triggering unconscious innate responses such as fight/ flight – freeze, inherent in all human beings. Somatics actively develops new neural pathways by engaging the nervous system consciously interacting with these unconscious habitual patterns.
Profound reorganisation of the body’s structure occurs when we can focus our attention and awareness on what we are experiencing rather than what we think about the experience. Participants learn to tune into sensory awareness of what is presently occurring in their living body, enhancing a unique and intimate relationship with in their internal / external environment.
No professional experience necessary for our Short Term courses, they are for anyone to enjoy. We hope you enjoy the experience.
